Detective Comics #1002

The post-anniversary arc for Detective Comics centers around a new group of medieval-looking vigilantes hitting town. In the latest issue Batman squares off not only against the self-appointed Arkham Knight but his entire larping group.
With Batman getting his butt kicked all around Gotham, Damian heads out on an investigation of his own. Unfortunately, the Boy Wonder walks right into a trap left by Arkham Knight's group who attempt to lure Damian to their way of thinking. They obviously don't know him very well, as Damian takes the first available moment to attempt escape.

More interested in beating Batman than taking his place as Gotham's new hero, the character was original created for the 2015 Batman: Arkham Knight video game. It's not clear if the comic character has the same origins as those in the video game (which would seem to be redundant to existing timelines), but Damian does seem to recognize the unmasked villain. For fans.
